Victory Amplification have announced two new models for NAMM 2017, the V40 Deluxe and V130 Super Countess.
The V40 Deluxe is is the next evolution of the V40 The Duchess head. A 2 x 6L6-powered all-valve amp with classic American cleans through to ’60s British drive, the Deluxe offers a lot from its single channel.

The reverb has controls for level and tone, enabling you to have a relatively darker or brighter toned reverb. Available in two formats: a 1 x 12 widebody combo with Celestion G12H-75 Creamback speaker and a head in a traditional wooden sleeve, the V40 Deluxe is part of the Victory Heritage Series.

V130 The Super Countess is evolved from Victory's best-selling V30 The Countess model. Upgraded for 2017, features now include an up-scaled, wooden-sleeve version, with a mighty 100-watt 6L6 power section and four footswitchable modes, two per channel.
The high-headroom Clean channel has footswitchable ‘clean’ and ‘crunch’ modes, the latter providing on-the-edge breakup tones to full-on classic rock drive. (V30 The Countess does not have the ‘crunch’ mode.) The Overdrive channel has two voice settings; Voice II is the classic V30 OD sound, while Voice I is new and offers tighter bottom end and slightly lower gain.
